Professional accreditation

What we hold

Some of our courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level can make you eligible for membership of the British Psychological Society (BPS). Accreditation of our courses by the BPS means that: 

  • our courses are of a high quality
  • future employers will understand the value of your course
  • the widest possible range of training, development and employment opportunities will be open to you.

Undergraduate courses

Our BA/BSc in Psychology is fully accredited by the BPS. If you graduate with at least a second-class honours then you are eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). This is essential if you want to go on to practise as a chartered psychologist in areas such as clinical, educational and forensic psychology.

Postgraduate courses

Our MSc Psychology is an advanced conversion course that, like our undergraduate courses, will give you eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the BPS.
